The Jura Region
While visiting the Jura, the town you must see is Arbois. Right in the heart of the wine-growing area, it has a great selection of wine shops, where you can taste wines from the best local producers, food shops, patisseries and chocolatiers, and restaurants.
But above all it has some of the most beautiful scenery in the region, easily seen on a twenty-minute signposted walk around the backstreets.
A really nice place to stay in Arbois is the Hôtel des Messageries, in the centre of the town, on the Rue de Courcelles.
Hôtel des Messageries
The hotel has 18 comfortable rooms, with prices starting at just €47 per night. Marie-Aude and her team offer a warm welcome and will be happy to give advice about vineyards to visit. After a long day’s touring and tasting you can relax and mingle with the locals in the hotel’s cosy bar.
